Twitter Was Beside Itself In Fury After Joe Marler Escaped Punishments From Both Citings

Twitter Was Beside Itself In Fury After Joe Marler Escaped Punishments From Both Citings

Joe Marler was rightly cited after two egregious incidents during England's Triple Crown sealing victory over Wales. Both incidents occurred in the first half, see Marler target both Welsh props - one by striking a defenseless player on the ground, and the other with a racial slur.

The citing committee heard both cases yesterday and most were expecting a lengthy ban. That wasn't the case, as Marler escaped without punishment, although he has dropped to the bench for England's tilt at the Grand Slam against France.

Twitter was apoplectic about the result of the hearing, and it's nice to see that it's not just Irish followers who get up in arms about ill-discipline going unpunished:
